REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MISSIONS. 

To the Baptist State Convention of Noith Carolina : 

Another year is passed, and its achievements are recorded. It has been a 
period of wonderful blessings to us as Baptists. From all parts of the world 
most encouraging reports have been received of God's dealings with his people. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 



STATE MISSIONS. 



This department of our Master's work has continued to grow, and its success 
has been so great that your Board has commissioned seventy missionaries this 
year, to carry the gospel of peace to the destitute regions of our beloved State. 
As will be seen from the accompanying tabulated statement, their reports are 
unusually encouraging: 

It is a matter of special gratification to be able to state that two of the three 
counties in Eastern Carolina which have been so long without Baptist churches 
now have organizations, which, properly cultivated, we hope soon to see devel- 
oped into large and flourishing churches. There is peculiar promise in the little 
band of workers organized at Bayboro, in Pamlico county. 

But Hyde county is still without a Baptist church, or a Baptist preacher. 
And there is no resident minister of our faith in Dare, PamSto, Washington, 
Greene, nor Alleghany counties ; and but one minister each in Beaufort, 
Pitt, Lenoir, Jones, Onslow, Edgecombe, Wilson, Martin and Tyrrell counties. 
And there are frequent cries which come up to your Board from these sections 
earnestly pleading for the bread of life. In turn, the Board asks the Baptists of 
the State for means to send men into this v.a* destitution. Our motto is : 
" North Carolina for Jesus Christ," and we shall not rest satisfied until this 
object is attained.

The new arrangement inaugurated last year for employing our young minis- 
terial students during their vacation has shown some results this year. Nineteen 
of the young brethren did effective work, as their reports will show, aggrega- 
ting So weeks, 75 protracted meetings attended, 300 sermons preached, witness- 
ed 932 professed conversions and 472 baptisms, and collected §710.95 to aid 
them. 

CONCLUSION. 

There is a great deal to encourage iis, when we look back over the year's labors. 
We have passed through one of the most trying periods, financially, in our his- 
tory. And at several times it seemed as if utter want would drive some of the 
missionaries from the field. But they stood like heroes, battling against every 
obstacle, until they came off conquerors. 

We regret to have to report a small indebtedness, but greatly rejoice that it is 
no larger. In fact, it is a source of congratulation that so little debt is upon us, 
when we consider the larger outlays made this year, the increased number of 
missionaries, and the extensive fields occupied. 

A large number of new fields are opening to us and several of them have 
sent up urgent petitions to be brought before the new Board for aid. Shall we 
enter these inviting fields and thus go forward in this great work, or shall we 
stop at what we are already trying to do? The action of this Convention will 
be the answer to this important question. God grant that it may be favorable. 

FIELD NOTES. 

For full particulars in connection with our work, we shall have to refer you 
to the Tabulated Reports, as on account of the large number of missionaries 
we have room for only a line from each.

l6 MINUTES OF THE 



OUTSIDE MISSIONARY WORK. 

Besides the Missionaries who have been laboring under appointment from our 
Board, several of the Associations have sent out men in their own bounds. 
Among these are the following: In the Liberty, Elder A. P. Stokes reports 
25 sermons, 15 religious visits, and 5 prayer meetings held; Elder J. A. Sum- 
mey, 7 sermons and 4 families visited. In the Kings Mountain, Elder G. M. Webb 
added 26 members at one mission station, where a house is building. Elders C. 
Felmet and P. R. Elam; in the Atlantic, Elder D. F. Aman; in. the Little 
River, Elders A. N. Campbell, H. W. Graham, T. J. Hunt and J. M. Holle- 
man; two others in the Cedar Creek; three in the South River; P. Oliver 
in the Beulah; J. M. McManaway and J. C. Barkley in the Tar River; D. Gil- 
liland, in the Chowan, reports 14 addresses, 30 sermons, 17 Sunday Schools vis- 
ited and $80.00 collected; in all eighteen. These, with our regular Mission- 
aries and Ministerial Students, make just 107. 

FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

Since your last meeting the Foreign Board has sent one additional missionary 
to Mexico, and is about to send two to reinforce Dr. Yates in the Central China 
mission. In the mean time three valuable missionaries have died, Mrs. Pruitt, 
Mrs. Holcombe and Mrs. David. Consequently our foreign missionary force re- 
mains the same as twelve months ago — 50. Of these three have not yet gone to 
their fields, and two have been seeking restoration of health in this countrj' ; 
while a number of those on the field have so lately gone that they have been 
able to do little besides study language. 

Still much prosperity has attended the work. The Annual Report of the 
Board in May gives the following statistics: Native assistants, 57; stations, 30; 
church members, 1,323; baptisms, 203; pupils in school, in Mexico 93, in Brazil 
40, in Africa 195, in China 145, in Rome 32. 

In Mexico and Brazil our missionaries have suffered much persecution, but 
God has continued his blessing. 

The Foreign Board makes an earnest appeal for $100,000 ; of which sum 
North Carolina Baptists are asked to give $8,000. That this amount is needed 
will be evident from the fact that seven years ago, when about $32, ooowas given 
annually, we had only 1 1 missionaries, now we have 50. And certainly the 
amount asked of us is not above our just proportion. 

The contributions from our State, however, have fallen much below. From 
1st Nov., 1884, to 27th Oct., 1885, the Board received $4,790.43, less by $388.37 
than was reported at your last session. Likewise the amount reported from 
North Carolina at the last Southern Baptist Convention was only $4,456.71, or 
less by $104.93 than at the previous session. 

It is to be earnestly hoped that we shall not go backward but forward in this 
great enterprise; and that whereas only half our churches now contribute to 
sending the gospel " to the nations," we shall all join in the work. 

No State is so thoroughly evangelized by the Baptists as ours, and therefore 
we ought to be foremost in evangelizing the heathen. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 1/ 

Moreover, after many long years, God has inclined some of our own number 
to go to the heathen. Brethren R. T. Bryan and D. W. Herring are about to 
carry the Word of Life to the multitudes of China. Is not this the Master's call 
for more prayer and more liberality and more sympathy in this work ? 

Besides, such a work must grow or die. " It is the nature of the missionary 
spirit to go forward or to die." Our venerable missionary at Shanghai has cried 
to us for help until his voice grows faint. Soon it will be silent. Let us arouse 
ourselves to give him not only two, but all the men he needs. 

[Note — From the Treasurer's report it will be seen that $4,992.00 has been 
sent up to him for Foreign Missions this .ear. To this should be added $325.93 
sent to Dr. Tupper direct; making the total receipts for Foreign Missions this 
year 35.3^7-93- This i.'m the largest amount ever raised by North Carolina Bap- 
tists for this object, and yet it is $2,682.07 less than the amount we are asked 
for — $8,000.] 

HOME MISSIONS. 

We give some extracts froift the excellent report of Dr. I. T. Tichenor to the 
late Southern Baptist Convention: 

" There is no State in the South where missionary work is more needed, or 
promises a more ample harvest than in Arkansas. * * * * 

"Of her seventy-five counties, the county seats of twenty-five have no Bap- 
tist church, nor house of worship. And in the others there is scarcely one which 
contains a church strong enough to support a pastor. The forty thousand Bap- 
tists of this State, scattered over her large territory, need to be unified and or- 
ganized for work. Though some of our noblest men are reckoned among her 
Baptist people, they'need help from abroad to accomplish this work. * * * * 

" What we have said of Arkansas is in many respects true of Louisiana. In 
this State our Baptist strength is located mostly in the northern part. There 
are twenty-eight parishes, or counties, which are destitute of Baptist preachers. 
The field is a hard and difficult one. Still, undeterred by these difficulties, we 
ought to press forward into these uncultivated places, and sow the gospel seed 
beside all her waters. * * * * 

" Our work in New Orleans is making steady and hopeful progress. During 
the year the Board has paid the installments falling due on both the property 
occupied by the first church, and the lot bought for the Valance Street Mission. 
* * * * 

" Should our efforts to establish this interest on a permanent foundation be 
successful, the future of our denomination will be most cheering. With the 
vantage ground then attained, we will be ready to move forward more rapidly 
than ever before. Our real work will then be just begun. The great contest 
will still be before us, but we will go forward, planting mission after mission 
and church after church, until the whole city is permeated with Baptist influ- 
ence. In this work we shall have the aid of the Baptists of the city, who al- 
ready are coming to our help. Our Industrial Schools have been found of great 
value to our work in opening the doors of many homes to our missionaries, and 
bringing many families under our influence. * * * * 

" Our mission work among the Indians has been highly prospered during the 
year. There have been many baptism? and restorations to the churches. The 
Levering School has been overflowing all the year. During the year 'the efforts 
of the Board to arouse a spirit of missions among the people have begun tO' 
bear fruit. The two Associations, that of the Creeks and that of the Choctaw 
and Chickasaw Churches, have united to support a missionary among the wild 
tribes, while the Creeks have appointed Bro. James Colbart as a missionary in 
their own bounds. * * * * 



l8 MINUTES OF THE 



" In Texas there have been employed twenty-eight missionaries in the Coii- 
vention and fifty-three in the General Association. The vast destitution pro- 
duced by the tide of immigration spreading westward and southward over the 
immense area of this State is not to be supplied even by twice this number of 
the heralds of salvation. With an extent of territory equal to that of six aver- 
age States of the South, Texas requires nearly six times the missionary work of 
any one State east of the Mississippi river. * * * * 

" The success of our work there in the years that are past, as well as at the 
present time, betokens that Texas is rapidly becoming the strongest of our 
Baptist States. In the not distant future her mighty legions will perform no 
insignificant part in the conquest of the other countries for Him whose right it 
is to reign. * * * 

" No one of our fields of labor is more inviting, offers greater promise for the 
future, or has greater needs in the present, than Florida. Rapidly settling up 
with a population such as never immigrated to any other State, possessing capa- 
bilities for the support of its inhabitants not excelled by those of any other part 
of our country, with a climate which has none like it on the globe, it must 
always be the resort of thousands whose physical necessities require them to 
seek its life-giving air. Important towns are rising along the line of its rapidly 
extending railroads, in every one of which we ought to organize a Baptist 
church and build a house of worship. * * * 

" In co-operation with the Convention of Western North Carolina, the Board 
has supported twelve missionaries. Our work here has been most encouraging. 
In no part of our field have the results been greater than in this. This section 
of the State is rapidly assuming an importance which makes its claims impera- 
tive upon the Board. 

" Its people, long shut in by their mountain ranges, find their country by the 
construction of railways thrown open to the great world without. Sources of 
wealth never dreamed of start into existence about them. Their pure moun- 
tain air with its life-giving qualities is sought by many who dwell in less favored 
climes. Health resorts are springing up on eveiy hand. New demands are 
made upon them. It is a matter of the highest importance that their religious 
improvement should keep pace with their material advancement. 

" As new centres of influence are developed new churches must be established, 
new houses of worship must be built. These brethren are addressing them- 
selves to the demands of these new conditions with a wisdom and an earnest- 
ness worthy of imitation on other fields."

BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. I9 

On motion, so much of the report as refers to State Mis- 
sions was made the special order for Thursday at 10:30 a. m. 

Consideration of so much of the report as refers to Foreign 
Missions was deferred to the mass meeting on Foreign Mis- 
sions Friday night. 

That part of the report referring to Home Missions was 
laid on the table till the arrival of Dr. TiCHENOR, 

On motion of Bro. HOBGOOD, the report of the Board of 
Education was made the special order for Thursday night 
at 7 o'clock. 

The report of the Sunday School Board was read as fol- 
lows, and made the special order for 10:30 a. m. Friday. 

REPORT OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL BOARD. 

To the Baptist State Cottvention of IVorth Carolina : 

The condition of our Sunday School work was never more favorable than at 
this time. And our people are coming more and more to see the importance of 
this great power. One of the most encouraging features is the continuance of 
such a large number of our schools through the winter months. Our churches 
have seen the wonderful influence of this factor in the success of the Lord's king- 
dom, and many of them have so fitted up their houses of worship as to make 
them not only comfortable, but really attractive. This has, of course, told 
materially upon the growth and permanence of the Sunday School cause. 

Another cause for congratulation is found in the fact that, through the agency 
of our Sunday School Supply Store, a very much larger number of the schools 
have been induced to take and use the Lesson Helps and periodicals which are 
now furnished at such low rates. And we are glad to state that the orders for 
such helps have increased nearly fifty per cent, over last year's figures. 

Your Board found, during the spring, that it was possible to secure the ser- 
vices of Bro. W. F. Sherwin in a Sunday School Institute, for a few days, which 
was held in Raleigh. After this, it was deemed inexpedient to hold a State Sun- 
day School Convention this year. 

OUR SUNDAY SCHOOL SUPPLY STORE. 

It affords us great pleasure to report this new enterprise in a prosperous and 
most gratifying condition. A very much larger number of our churches and 
Sunday Schools have ordered their supplies through the Supply Store, and the 
labor entailed has so greatly increased that your Board was compelled to employ 
additional aid for the Corresponding Secretary. This has, of course, increased 
the expenses of the office, and yet, after paying all claims, the finances are in a 
better condition than ever before, as will be seen from the following

helping supply the destitute in our State with copies of the Scriptures. We also 
feel indebted to the editors and publishers who have furnished our office free 
of charge with the following valuable periodicals, viz. ; The Biblical Recorder, 

The Stmday School Times, The Baptist Teacher, The Alabama Baptist, Kind 

Words, and The Transcript and Messenget .

CONCLUSION. 

We feel very much encouraged at the success Avhich has attended our efforts 
this year. But we are not fully satisfied, nor shall we be, until we have an 
active Baptist Sunday School in every Baptist church and neighborhood in North 
Carolina. To this end, your Board would earnestly ask our churches to take 
collections for this work, that we may have the funds wherewith to establish 
such schools.

BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 29 

Elder HUFHAM read the Report on Periodicals, which 
was adopted after remarks by Elders WHITFIELD and 
Strickland, as follows . 

REPORT ON PERIODICALS. 

A well conducted religious newspaper is essential to the equipment of every 
christian, to the furnishing of every household. Without it one can not under- 
stand the great issues of his time or bear his part in the great conflict which the 
Lord Christ is waging for the conquest of the earth. 

It is a matter for thankfulness that in the Biblical Recorder we have a 
journal, in all respects, such as we need: fearless in the defence of the truth 
and in the exposure of error; thoroughly devout in its tone; pervaded in every 
department by a sanctified common sense which furnishes reading matter suited 
to every class; cheap enough to be within reach of almost every family. 

T\\.Q Foreign Mission Journal, Richmond, Va., gives full information, at 
trifling cost, in reference to our work in foreign lands. 

Kind Words, the Sunday School paper of the Southern Baptists, is admira- 
bly adapted to the purposes for which it is designed. 

The Young Reaper, published in Philadelphia, is also commended. 

J. D. HuFHAM, Chairman. 

On motion, the resolutions concerning the Greenville 
Memorial Church were made the special order for Friday at

F. Conrad and Bro. C. J. Watkins were appointed frater- 
nal messengers to attend the Colored Baptist State Conven- 
tion. 

On motion, the Convention adjourned with benediction

Elder R. T. Vann and read by the Secretary as follows : 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

Within the last year aid has been given, for longer or shorter periods, to for- 
ty-two young ministers, all at Wake Forest College. It is gratifying to report 
that, notwithstanding the wide-spread financial depression growing out of a 
succession of poor crops, the receipts of the Board last year exceeded those of 
the previous year by seven hundred dollars ($700). The debt reported at your 
last session has been reduced to three hundred and fifty dollars ($350). If the 
Convention will raise this amount, we hope to be able to meet expenses for the 
ensuing year. 

Six of our beneficiaries graduated last June, of whom two have entered the 
Seminary and the rest are in active service in the State. At present we are 
aiding thirty brethren. Four other young preachers are defraying their own 
expenses. W. L. Poteat, 

President of Boaj-d of Education.

C. Durham, Chairman Board Trustees.

T. W. Babb and J. S. PUREFOY, was adopted : 

Whereas, The amount pledged at this session for State Missions is less than 
was pledged at the last session ; and whereas, this may be construed by the

Resolved, That we will faithfully endeavor to raise more money this year than 
in any other year of its history.

HAM, J. D. HuFHAM, R. T. Vann and T. H. Pritchard, 
the report was adopted as follows : 

REPORT OF committee OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF WAKE 
FOREST COLLEGE. 

During the Conventional year now closing there has been a gratifying change 
in the condition of our college. 

THE NEW PRESIDENT 

Has shown himself fully equal to the requirements of the important office to 
which he was elected just a year ago. His administration has been character- 
ized by great wisdom, by unflagging zeal and energy, and by the most delicate 
tact in handling the difficult and perplexing questions pertaining to his posi- 
tion. The other members of the Faculty have co-operated with him very 
heartily in all things. It would be hard to find elsewhere a body of men, of 
rare ability and ripe scholarship, devoting themselves with such harmony and 
singleness of heart to the great work which has been given them to do. 

THE PATRONAGE 

shows an increase of 24 per cent, during the present session. The whole 
number of students in actual attendance is 157, the largest number ever present 
during a fall session. The health and deportment of the young men have been 
good. They are devoting themselves with great industry and enthusiasm to 
the prosecution of their studies. Notwithstanding the failure of the crops 
throughout the eastern portion of the State and the low price of cotton, the 
indications are that the number of young men now in attendance will be con- 
siderably increased during the spring session. 

FINANCIAL. 

The present endowment, bearing interest, is $102,999.82. All this money is 
securely invested. Besides this there are two buildings valued at $12,000 each, 
A third building, with library and apparatus, is valued at $18,000, making 
$42,000 in buildings, &c. These buildings are all in good condition and in- 
sured in safe companies. Within the last twelve months additions to the amount 
of $800, mainly with the view of fitting up a laboratory and equipping the 
department of analytical chemistry, which is now in successful operation, has 



38 MINUTES OF THE 

been made. There is a floating debt of $7,100, created before the raising of 
the present endowment ; but this amount is covered by $11,000 of assets, amply 
sufficient to pay the debt. 

THE PROSPECTS 

of our college are in many respects inspiriting. The Baptists of the State are 
now more than ever united and enthusiastic in their devotion to it, as is shown 
by the endowment which they have given out of their poverty, and by the steady 
and increasing patronage which they are bestowing upon it. Nor is this devo- 
tion unmerited. The alumni, filling positions of honor and usefulness, and 
achieving success in the walks of business and professional life in our own State 
and in other States, justify the belief that the institution which they have 
founded is worthy of their toils, their gifts, their confidence and their love. 

We call attention to one shadow which lies across the path of our own col- 
lege and of other similar institutions in the State : the policy of the State in 
reference to college education. The State institution at Chapel Hill covers 
substantially the same ground and conferring substantially the same degrees, is 
the rival of the other colleges in the State. Not content with the advantage 
which accrues from the prestige of a State institution, it has been three times 
in succession recommended by the Governors of the State that tuition be made 
free at the State college. There is no indication that this purpose has been 
abandoned. The Baptists of North Carolina are therefore confronted by the 
prospect of this state of things if the wishes and purposes of the authorities are 
carried out. The Baptists of the State, after having invested a hundred and 
fifty thousand dollars to carry on the business of college education, meet the 
State as a rival on the same field. 

In this view of the case it becomes our duty to utter our emphatic protest. 
We are also called on to labor with fresh zeal and energy for our college. It 
fills a place absolutely essential to the highest measure of prosperity and useful- 
ness of the denomination and of great importance to the work.

Committee. 

Here the special order was called, the report of the Com- 
mittee on the Condition and Prospects of the Baptist Or- 
phanage. 

Elder W. A. NELSON led in prayer. 

Bro. Mills read appropriate Scriptures. A charity song,

sung by a male quartet choir. 

Bro. F. P. HODGOOD read the report of the committee as 
follows : 

CONDITION AND PROSPECTS OF THE BAPTIST ORPHANAGE. 

In Raleigh, during the last session of this body, an Association was organized 
for the establishment of a Baptist Orphanage in North Carolina. A charter 
was obtained through the Legislature, enabling the Association to receive 
money, hold property and carry out the objects contemplated by the Associa- 
tion. The Orphanage has been located at Thomasville. One hundred and 
seventy-one acres of land have been purchased and paid for. One hundred and 
thirty-five acres more have been purchased, on which one payment has been 
nmde ; another to ba made in a few days. One house, the gift of Elder John 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 4I 

Mitchell, son of W. W. Mitchell, has been completed, and it will be opened for 
the reception of orphans as soon as the furniture, which is expected, shall be 
received. Another house, the gift of John Watson, will soon be finished. A 
house, the gift of Noah Biggs, will be built as soon as possible. Three other 
houses are provided for, to go up during the approaching spring. These, when 
completed, will accommodate one hundred and fifty orphans, each house, one 
story high, being designed for twenty-five chQdren. The location is all that could 
be desired and all the arrangements thus far have been made with great wisdom 
and good taste. The Baptists of the State have, almost without solicitation or ap- 
peal, given for this enterprise with a liberality which is without a parallel in our 
history. 

It is a matter for profound thankfulness that it hath entered into the hearts 
of the brethren to establish this institution and to carry it on thus far with such 
noble liberality. The ends which it has in view are high and heavenly, and the 
prayers and gifts of the Baptists of the State may well go out to it freely. 

Pending the motion to adopt, addresses were made by 
Elders R. VanDeventer, J. L. Carroll, W. A. Nelson, 
Bro. J. H. Mills, Elders T. E. Skinner, T. H. Pritchard, 
and a collection was taken amounting to $ . 

The report was then adopted. 

On motion, the question of aiding students for the min- 
istry at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary was left 
to the judgment of the Board of Education. 

On motion, the Convention adjourned to Sunday night 
after the sermon.

The number of our missionaries, native and foreign, is 105; their stations ana 
out-stations are 42; the increase of membership has been 203; the pupils of 
the Sunday and day schools number 684; our church membership is 1,241; the 
contributions on the fields amount to $1,077". the home receipts have been 
$87,047.83. The work is expanding signally in each of the five continents m 
which our missionaries labor. Next year at least five chapels should be built, 
and at least ten additional missionaries should be sent out. Our Mexican en- 
terprise needs a heavy outlay of money. Into all our advances the Board has 
been led seemingly by the hand of Providence. The past inspires gratitude; 
the future stimulates faith. The Board expects to go forward, depending on 
the liberality of the churches and claiming the promise of the Saviour : " And. 
lo! I am with you alway, even unto the end of world."
